Grab your blender and let’s make some frojitos! ♡♡♡
They’re made with all of the same fresh mint, lime juice, rum and honey (my preferred sweetener) that goes into a classic mojito recipe. But in lieu of topping your drink off with club soda, just add in a handful of ice instead. Then toss everything in the blender, puree until the drink is nice and slushie-ish, and voila — a round of refreshing frozen mojitos can be yours to enjoy for happy hour in less than 5 minutes!
Perfect for summertime happy hours and grill-outs and pool days, perfect for using up that overflowing fresh mint in your garden, and perfect for any day that you’re craving an extra-minty mojito.
Cheers, friends! Let’s make some frojitos!
Frozen Mojito Ingredients:
To make these frozen mojitos, you will need:
Fresh mint leaves: Some for the mojito itself, plus extra for garnish if you would like.
Rum: Mojitos are typically made with white rum, but feel free to use whatever kind you prefer.
Lime juice: Freshly-squeezed, please.
Honey simple syrup: I prefer to make my simple syrup naturally sweetened with honey (see instructions below). But you can always use traditional simple syrup (made with granulated sugar) if you prefer.
Ice: Just add however much is needed to get that nice fine slushie consistency.
How To Make A Frojito:
To make a frozen mojito, simply…
Blend the mint, rum, lime juice and sweetener. Combine everything in a high-speed blender and puree until smooth.
Add ice. Then add in however much ice you need (usually about 1 cup per serving) until the mojito reaches a fine slushie-like consistency.
Serve. Immediately pour the mojito into a serving glass. Garnish with extra mint and/or lime wedges, if you would like. Then enjoy!

How To Make Honey Simple Syrup: Combine equal parts honey and water in a saucepan. Then heat until the mixture nearly reaches a simmer, then whisk together until the honey melts into the water. You can refrigerate the mixture in a sealed container for up to 3 days. (Pro tip: feel free to also make a small batch in the microwave, it’s even faster!)
great idea, love this tweak I actually prefer the texture of mojito ingredients frozen versus fresh, so much appreciated
This is an interesting idea. I would never have thought to do this. I love mojitos, so I’ll have to try this.
